Knife Rights’ Virginia Switchblade Ban Repeal Bill, SB 758, has been voted out of the Senate unanimously. Our sincere thanks and congratulations to sponsor Senator Todd Pillion for his efforts to pass SB 758 with a unanimous bipartisan vote. It now heads to the House.
Knife Rights had led the effort to repeal switchblade bans or restrictions in 18 states, starting with New Hampshire in 2010. Repeals have since been enacted in Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
Altogether, Knife Rights’ efforts have resulted in 34 bills enacted repealing knife bans in 23 states and over 150 cities and towns since 2010.
